Julia Min Hwang Takes Helm of MBA Career Group
June 20, 2014
After leading the Full-time Berkeley MBA Program for a decade, Julia Min Hwang has taken the helm of the Haas School’s Career Management Group.
Hwang became executive director of career management services and corporate engagement on June 2, a role that serves all students and alumni in the Full-time Berkeley MBA, Evening & Weekend MBA, and Berkeley MBA for Executives programs. Hwang also will be responsible for overseeing corporate engagement for the Haas School. This includes stewarding and cultivating strategic, multi-faceted partnerships with employers to increase opportunities for student careers, speaking engagements, and experiential learning projects.
“I am thrilled to be joining this amazing team and working with our entire MBA student population and alumni,” says Hwang. “I also look forward to working with our internal and external partners to enhance our corporate engagement.”
Under Hwang’s leadership, the Full-Time Berkeley MBA Program has consistently improved and innovated student experiences -- both in academics and student activities. Hwang co-led the Berkeley Innovative Leader Development (BILD) initiative, which created a structure for the school’s strategy to develop innovate leaders. She closely collaborated with the faculty to better integrate core classes and to provide an array of courses to meet student demand and interest. She also provided support and guidance to students for such activities as conferences, competitions, and club life.
In addition to her responsibilities in the Full-time MBA Program, Hwang has served on various school-wide committees such as the Senior Leadership Team, Leading Through Innovation Brand Council, and Culture Implementation Team.
During the transition, Dan Sullivan, senior director of academic affairs in the Full-time Berkeley MBA Program, will serve as interim executive director.
